Nordic Council Music Prize

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Nordic Council Music Prize is awarded annually by NOMUS, the Nordic Music Committee. Every two years it is awarded for a work by a living composer. In the intervening years it is awarded to a performing musician or ensemble.

The Nordic Music Committee (NOMUS)

The Nordic Council has four art committees:[1]

  • The Nordic Literature and Library Committee (NORDBOK)
  • The Nordic Music Committee (NOMUS)
  • The Nordic Centre for the Performing Arts (NordScen)
  • The Nordic Institute for Contemporary Art (NIFCA)

NOMUS consists of two delegates from each of the five Nordic countries (Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland) and observers from the three areas with self-rule (Greenland, the Faroe Islands and the Åland Islands ). NOMUS awards grants to promote musical co-operation in the Nordic Region; subsidizes commissioned works, musical performances, seminars, conferences and educational courses; and acts as the secretariat and jury of the Nordic Council Music Prize.[2]

The Nordic Council Music Prize

This prize was launched in 1965 and was originally awarded once every three years. Since 1990, however, the prize has been awarded every year. In alternate years it is awarded to a piece of music by a living Nordic composer and to a small or large musical ensemble of high artistic and technical standards. It is currently worth 350,000 Danish kroner.[3]
